Church Doors

This is the front door of the State Street Congregational Church decked out for the season. This morning in the southern Maine we wake to an over night snow cover of 3-4 inches. This snow is going to be sticking around, all but guaranteeing us a white Christmas. So now it's time to check the record books. A white Halloween? A white Thanksgiving and now a white Christmas? I certainly can never remember such an occurrence in Portland. I'm sure that over the next day or so, meteorologists will be scouring the history of holiday snowfall to see if it's even on record. I say it's amazing, considering my memory recalls some years of no significant snow till January around here. Today, some last minute shopping and out to dinner with my two best buds. There's a piece of steak in my future!

  6. Have a great time shopping and going out this evening! About Tuba Christmas, it was the 21st Annual Tuba Christmas Concert. This year the number I heard reported as playing Christmas carols for a standing room only crowd--225. Pioneer Courthouse Square was three-fourths packed. Check out my December 13 post for another photo of my favorite tubas. Turns out the guy in the middle commented the names of the huge, deeply resonating tubas!

  7. Love the doors and you captured them perfectly.

    Thanks for visiting. The painting of the trees was done by my husband... this years Christmas Card. He has been doing this for several years now and considers himself an "outsider" artist...no training. I will pass on your comment. Have a joyous holiday season!

  12. Such a purty photo, beautiful light, love those doors. Envy your snow for Christmas. We got 10 minutes of light light flurries today and that is it. And we're in the snow belt and usually have FEET of it. Happy holidays, Birman-erino.
